I have to admit that I skipped over a lot of the flowery language in this bill about providing the highest quality care and how the government will pay for everything under the sun going forward without any copays or deducables (at least they’ll pay for what their new Office of Quality Control, the USNHI Program Director and the National Board of Universal Quality and Access say they’ll pay for – and who sez there are no jobs available????) in favor of going right to the section on where the magic pixies will create all the money for this…
Here’s the deal…under the heading FUNDING…
A) Existing sources of Federal govern-ment revenues for health care. (such as ?????)
B) Increasing personal income taxes on the top 5 percent income earners. (well there’s a real incentive to bust my hump and get rich so I can give more of it away)
(C) Instituting a modest and progressive excise tax on payroll and self-employment income. (Great let’s hammer small businesses)
(D) Instituting a small tax on stock and bond transactions. (Sure. Why not).
What…no tax increases on school lunches?
Entitlement entitlement entitlement. Guess what…as a middle class guy who works his butt off to pay my way, I’m totally fucking fed up. Obama is the nightmare I hoped he would not be.
Here’s the assumption: Everyone is entitled to affordable healthcare. Where is that written in the constitution???? And you can drag out all the children major illness stories you want to try to prove a point, but you know what? There is a limit, and some people are going to die because they can’t afford it. Cold…yes. The truth? Yes. We, the middle class, are sick and tired of picking up the tab for those less fortunate. I give plenty in terms or time and money to charity of my own choosing and own volition. Now I’ve got the Feds stickingt their scummy palms further into my pocket until they grab my balls and yank them out with any loose change they can scrounge.
It’s time for a revolution. The free ride is over. It’s time to get pissed off and act!
